Coming into the year, Idaho coach Don Verlin looked at this week — with games at home against Washington State and at Oregon State separated by three days — and knew it would be telling for the Vandals. Could they hang with two Pac-12 schools? It turns out they could, and they almost went 2-for-2 in upsets for the week. UI squelched every Oregon State rally attempt in the second half and rolled to a 74-60 rout of the Beavers in Corvallis — its most decisive win over a Pac-12 school since 1992. Idaho moved to 5-4, while OSU dropped to 6-2/Josh Wright, SR SportsLink. More here.
